webwat: I doubt you would be buying the data usage as 1TB or whatever, its usually sold as bandwidth/speed instead of throughput. If you do setup a connection and router to support only 1Mbps from a single machine with an optimised TCP "receive window" then you could theoretically download 2.5TB i8n a month from a similarly optimised USA server, and it might cost over $100 or $200 with a service level agreement for jitter or CIR. Aggregating 1000s of users and paying Telecom to deliver the traffic is a different story. Will be good to see some new business models come from competition on both the local loop and international links.


Exactly. Imagine if Vocus did something like this to Equinex over in the US west coast landing area:

It would be a game changer for international bandwidth for smaller ISPs, even without pacific fibre.

I'm sure anything will help and I'm all for Vocus pushing the barrow as hard as they can.

I did some stats on that TW stuff that was posted yesterday and I can see the clear problem.

If I've done my math right, it translates to an average data volume of 4gig/user/month during the time that they're likely to be using the service.

Compare that to 500gb 'on peek' data being offered up by .au ISPs.
